Global BioImaging has opened its international job shadowing program - apply today!

Job shadowing is a "on-the-job" learning opportunity, thanks to which technical and managerial staff working in an imaging core facility has the opportunity to visit peers across the globe and learn from them. Essentially, imaging facility shadowing involves working with another experienced member of staff in a different facility who might have longer experience, provide open user access, operate a different set of imaging technologies, and so on.


Launch of the Euro-BioImaging Industry Board website

The ability to do research depends on the availability of suitable products. It is therefore essential that researchers and imaging facility staff have a clear communication line to a wide range of companies in the field to ensure that the companies understand the trends in research thereby making available suitable products. The Euro-BioImaging Industry Board (EBIB) members consist of a range of companies in the field of imaging, joined together by their recognition of the importance of working closely with the community to ensure that they develop products that are fit for purpose.


EOSC-Life: developing an open collaborative space for digital biology in Europe

These days, the ability to exploit and understand research data is critical for the next advances in understanding of life and disease, addressing societal challenges and strengthening the bio-economy. To ensure that European Life Science remains at the forefront of global advances and to deepen research, scientific data along with its associated digital services must be findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) across scientific disciplines and national boundaries.


European Commission publishes Global BioImaging as Success Story on their website!

On December 12th, the European Commission has published the article "Global network of research infrastructures promotes bioimaging technologies", highlighting Global BioImaging (GBI) as success story on their website. If you want to learn more about this international network of imaging infrastructures, please visit also our GBI website. Enjoy the read!


A call for public archives for biological image data

With the advances in modern imaging technologies, the wealth of digital imaging data is rising exponentially. While this will lead to exciting breakthroughs (such as the integration of image data with other data types) new challenges are also presenting themselves. The storage of data, its complexity and interoperability are but a few of the, seemingly universal, challenges for today’s life scientists.
